Pattern Description:

A delightful vest pattern suitable for both boys and girls and easy to sew.

A simply sweet little vest in 3 sizes,3 months,6 months and 9 months.
The vest is designed to be a generous fit.

This design used to be my favorite when my sons were small.
When they outgrew one I made another in a bigger size.

It's the kind of practical, fun top that will take a baby anywhere and keep him warm but not restricting active movements.

Over the years I have made many of these in all sorts of sizes and colours with different kinds of applique.
Make it from any colour fleece fabric,it will look fabulous.

It is fully lined with knit fabric,which makes it reversible it you like

You can make it from faux fur and omit the applique for a very trendy look.
The crochet sheep are easy to make and are hand stitched onto the jacket.
You could play around with all sorts of embellishments for both boys and girls, the sky is the limit!

All edges and hemlines are embellished with hand embroidered blanket stitch for an extra hand made touch.
